Festo has launched a range of pneumatic cylinders with integral guide units. The 76 model DFM range provides standard strokes from 10 to 200mm and piston diameters from 12 to 63mm.
The guide units offer flexible mounting points on the top, base, side and ends, and top pneumatic connections for the air supply. There are slots for space saving, flush mounting of reed or electronic cylinder switches.
You get a choice of either plain sliding bearings or recirculating ball bearing guides, and as an example of the sturdy design, the 25mm diameter, 50mm stroke model with ball bearings can accept up to 71N maximum load and 4.39Nm torque.
